Sagittarius Man: The Impulsive Optimist

Getting confused by your Sagittarius man? Need some insight about who he really is? With the help of Astrology, we can get all of the answers you seek about Sagittarius men!

Most importantly, let’s go over the must-know basics of the zodiac sign Sagittarius.

Sagittarius people are born between November 22nd and December 21st of every given year. The Sagittarius zodiac glyph is the archer, being very relevant since Sagittarius people are big picture thinkers with big dreams. Sagittarius people are free-spirited and want to expand their horizons in any way possible!

Further, Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac, being mainly focused on higher knowledge and expansion. The order of the sign is relevant because it can show us the stage of development of each sign. Since Sagittarius is close to the end of the zodiac, they tend to come off as wise; they’re always trying to understand the world from a wider lens. Ironically, their curious approach can also make them seem rather young at heart.

Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign, making them quite free flowing but passionate. Their energy can resemble somewhat of a wildfire, following wherever their passion takes them next. The combination of mutable fire influences Sagittarians to be easy going yet direct. Sagittarians can sometimes have a difficult time because of this quality, making them rather blunt and to the point. Their ruling planet, Jupiter, influences Sagittarius to be open minded, generous, and jolly.

Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s start to understand Sagittarius men!

Unravelling the Sagittarius Man: Personality, Tendencies & Trust Patterns

Sagittarius men are perhaps the most adventurous sign of the zodiac. These men are characterized by being nomadic as they detest staying in one place for too long. They are the ultimate freedom lovers that would rather lose it all than live feeling trapped. Sagittarius men are extremely friendly and optimistic, they always see the bright side to things and are the glass-half-full type. These men know how to make the best out of a bad situation, as they are always looking for the greater meaning of life.

Furthermore, Sagittarius men have expansive minds and even bigger ideas. In that sense, they can be similar to Pisces men, as they also tend to get lost in the clouds. Sagittarius men can spend hours in their own mind dreaming about the possibility of everything and anything. This actually makes them goal-oriented on one hand, but they can have a difficult time planning the details of their goals. Their big-picture thinking is likely why they are always onto the next thing. These men love to experience all that there is to life, and can have a slightly overindulgent quality to them. However, Sagittarius men just want to experience all that life has to offer them. These men are extremely adventurous and want to see as much as they can!

Being ruled by Jupiter, the great benefic in Astrology, Sagittarius men are very generous people. They have a charitable energy to them, making them the perfect philanthropist. These men can find common ground with anyone, which is partially why they are so drawn to travelling to far away lands. To a Sagittarius man, the more that he sees, the more that he knows. Being influenced by Jupiter, these men want to be wisest, and learn about all there is to know. Sagittarius men are great learners, but even better teachers. They love to teach others through their vivid storytelling, and expand their minds along the way. Sagittarius men are the type to always have a ‘moral of the story’ lesson to share!

Moreover, Jupiter’s influence on Sagittarius men makes them quite lucky! When these men decide to shoot their arrow, they typically always land on target. These men seem to have a horseshoe up their you-know-what. This quality is perhaps what makes Sagittarian men so magnetic. They have a natural way of making others feel like magic is in the air. These men make you feel like you may win the lottery if you sit close enough to them! They have a contagious faith about life that is hard to ignore. Jupiter influences Sagittarian men to be like this, however, sometimes they can overdo their luck. These men aren’t necessarily the grounded type, and can overestimate their opportunities in life. However, one thing gone wrong is never enough to damper this lucky man’s optimism!

When it comes to trust, Sagittarius men may be a little too generous! These men tend to trust all that comes their way, as long as they don’t make their untrustworthiness apparent. Sagittarius men are more caught up in their own world, and don’t spend much of their time being overly suspicious or cautious. If anything, they can be rather reckless and at times, not put much thought into things. As previously mentioned, they tend to have the mentality that their luck is infinite. This can be great, as they tend to make friends easily, as others appreciate their open demeanor. However, this can also get them in sticky situations. In the end, Sagittarius men aren’t ones to hold a grudge, and prefer to just move onto their next adventure.

While these men don’t like to feel tied down, when they are in love they won’t want to leave their lover’s side. It won’t feel forced to them because they genuinely want to be there, and so they won’t have the impulse to move onto the next.
